Developing psychic abilities for beginners. In this guide I will provide an overall background, map out your first steps, and include tutorials so you can practice pendulum divination, seeing auras, and reading tarot cards. While some people are naturally more sensitive or gifted than others, I have found that with a little encouragement, just about everyone can do this.
Developing psychic abilities for beginners involves practicing several intuitive skills, starting with simple divination and working up. A good explanation is to compare this to learning to play a musical instrument: First there are the basics of musical theory to learn. Then you need become thoroughly familiar with your instrument. Finally you need to spend many hours of practicing scales. Then and only then are you ready to produce some real music.
The first steps of developing psychic abilities for beginners are similar to - 1 Basics of musical theory. 2 Instrument familiarity. 3 Practicing scales.
At first you have to concentrate on what you are doing. However with practice, the mechanics of playing music becomes automatic, and you are free to concentrate on your creativity. - It is exactly the same when developing your psychic ability! By using and practicing with these skills you will unlock your own psychic senses and learn how to use them.
If you cannot imagine it, then it cannot be!! - So you had better get to work on your imagination! At times we all shows signs of having a sixth sense.
You may well put it down to your imagination, but then you find that what you imagined actually happened.
Your imagination is not only a vital part of your being. It is the essence of your creative ability and the seed of developing psychic abilities for beginners. In fact, by further evolving your imagination, you will find that you germinate skills and abilities which many would find amazing.
When you read a book, your imagination supplies the pictures and places you in the story, (or the story in you). A vivid imagination is also your path to creativity! Where would an artist be without their imagination to project their art into reality? Your imagination is also your portal to your extra sensory perception. However, whilst your imagination is your portal to the psychic realms, it is only that, they are not one and the same. There is a fine line separating the two. Discriminating between the two is simply a matter of experience.
Imagination emanates from within yourself, whilst your sixth sense is received from without. Put it this way, if you were a radio transmitter/receiver, imagination is what you send, whilst your sixth sense is what you receive.
Now most Psychics do not normally walk around in a permanent state of heightened extrasensory perception. One learns to control ones state of awareness, in the same way as we all change our level of concentration to suit each occasion.
For those few poor souls who are stuck on maximum sensitivity all the time, life must be difficult in the extreme, trying to discriminate between the psychic world and the physical world at the same time. There are a great many people who are being treated for mental disorders who are just as sane as the rest of us, but who struggle turning off their strong psychic powers.
For the rest of us, we can live in the "normal" physical world, with the added advantage of intuition, perceiving auras, and receiving whispers from guides when the occasion demands. Trust me, there are times it is good to not have any of psychic power and to be able to just switch off. However, personally, I would find not having my psychic ability akin to losing my sight or hearing.
From time to time of course, we will become aware of a non-physical presence making itself known. To an aware person, these presences are our companions in life - we catch glimpses of their auras and hear their whispers every day. To people who choose not to be aware, the messages and whispers are still there, however they manifest themselves as "coincidences" or signs.
When these signs fail to penetrate the fog of denial, the signs become dreams, which can become progressively more dramatic until the message sinks in!
Note: If you are hearing voices and they go away when you tell them, you are in control – and you are ok. However if you feel an overwhelming compulsion to obey the voices - get some professional help - now!
There are many explanations for non-physical presences. Some of these are:
All of these explanations are valid! They are metaphysical concepts. Attempts to define such phenomenon will fall short because definitions will be a reflection of your human perceptions rather than the spiritual reality. Definitions are man-kinds way of trying to create "God" in his own image! The reality of the "Spiritual World", "Astral Plane", "Causal Plane" or whatever, is far beyond the limited three dimensional perceptions of we mortals. Any "Reality" we can imagine is a projection of our own psyche. Metaphysics brings with it its own disciplines and realities.
Often I find people trying to explain a phenomenon in logical terms - and failing to, when there is a quite simple metaphysical explanation. This is because metaphysics is a branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and our perception of the world, that is, using our psychic ability.
Broadly, there are four different types of psychic abilities, these are:
Perception is the key to developing psychic abilities for beginners. Perception is not just how we think about things, rather it is what happens when we turn off the thinking process. It is ‘open-mind-ness’ where our minds are open to "see" on other levels. It is the realm of the spiritual, the mystic, of wisdom. That is what you are getting yourself into!
Developing psychic abilities for beginners is not just all meditation and contemplation; your psychic ability should be integrated into your daily life. It is your sixth sense, and it should be as useful to you as your regular sight and hearing.
As a rule of thumb, the further you wish to develop your psychic abilities, the more you need to discipline your lifestyle. Associating with people also involved in the metaphysical is also very helpful in developing psychic abilities for beginners, even necessary, however you will find yourself attracted to like minds and abilities, in fact you will draw them into your life.
Naturally a lifestyle balance needs to be achieved, but basic practices and disciplines do need to be observed. Most psychic skills tend to be latent. They have not been developed because they are frowned upon or misunderstood in our society.
An example when developing psychic abilities for beginners is the ability to see auras. We can all do it - we were born able to see auras, but at some point we were told or intuitively realized that others didn't, so most people have lost the ability. (Use it or lose it)!
I have chosen each of the following exercises, in developing psychic abilities for beginners, for their practical applications to daily life. And in general each example builds on the foundation of the previous example.
There are dozens of methods which we could explore. In order to expand and develop your abilities, I have chosen the three best tools and presented them in order of difficulty. Each of these exercises for developing psychic abilities for beginners will build on the awareness gained from the previous lesson.
